In that respect it does negatively affect your performance because even subconsciously (and I suppose consciously according to your post) you think there is no tangible benefit to planning or better time management, so performance wise, you're not going to achieve your full potential.




Um no, I don't just "think" I did well. I earned pretty much straight As all through school. I always did my best work, whether left to the last minute or not. And just because I left finishing things til the last minute doesn't mean I don't know how to manage time or plan ahead. It was only because I'm extremely well organize/know how to manage my time and plan ahead that I put things off. I didn't just leave EVERYTHING til the end. I always did research and readings, etc ahead of time, and always knew in my mind what had to get done. I just left the actual execution til the end - because I knew in my mind that was all the time I needed, and could (and did, continually) get away with it.

Full potential? I was in the top of my class and won an esteemed award, and always got first pick of anything I've ever wanted career/achievement wise.

Like I said, the only real downside was the physical and mental stress of pulling all nighters.

I just fucking hated doing school work. Why spend my time doing something I dislike, when I'm skilled enough at it that I can do it in far less time than the average idiot?

Then you don't procrastinate, no?

Well, not 100% no. But I mean - I'm a keener...I always immersed myself in my courses and made sure to have weekly readings done, and stay on top of the regular course work. By the time it came to write a paper or do a project, everything was already there in my mind, so it was only a matter of actually putting the finished product together. Which is the worst fucking part, so I always put it off til the end, lol.

I'm definitely not an all around leave everything til the last minute kind of person. The exact opposite in fact. Just school work.

Then it's school work procrastination, which is actually just being lazy, which is normal and healthy.
It being the 21st century, you would expect they would already come up with a device that would transcript your voice into paper work..

Ahahaha, actually I'm 100% positive that exists. I know people who have claimed disability status (due to ADHD, no joke) and received education grants from the government. Basically they get set up with a computer and all kinds of software that will record lectures, read your text books to you, and some shit where you can recite your work and it will make it a text file. Assholes.

Seems like a good excuse to put up a protest on facebook, since we are all obliged to make use of such software, after all none of us are born yearning to type tens of pages of schoolwork now right?
There's no real point (none at all), in sitting and typing your way through the night, except for maybe after 4 years of doing so you've made yourself a 1st class secretary (give or take the looks).
That software is ought to be spread to the masses.
